He saw Charleen, and she was surrounded by clouds of white, soft pinks and blues. In the dream, he had on a white robe, a breast plate of gold, and a sword holstered at his side. Charleen had a white robe on and her hair was gathered to one side in curls. She was talking to him. However, she was calling him ‘Tabbruis’, his given name, and his heart warmed. In the dream scene, he held her in his arms. “Charmeine, you are my light and my breath. God has given the gift of our love to our family. We are truly blessed.”

They kissed and held each other close.

She whispered in his ear, “Tabbruis, I love you.”

“Semper tuus ero, Charmeine.”

“Semper tua ero, Tabbruis.”

The dream faded into misty clouds of white.

It was light outside when Charleen awoke. She felt Tabbruis’ chest under her head which comforted her immediately.

He opened his eyes, and felt her stir on his chest. He held her tightly.

She smiled and said with a whisper, “You’re here. You didn’t leave me.”

“I’m glad you did.” She smiled and yawned.

“I also had a good dream, which is unusual.” He closed his eyes recollecting the wonderful dream.

“Don’t you ever have good dreams, Tab?”

“Usually, no,” he furrowed his eyebrows. Then his face changed, and began to smile, “Though you were in my dream last night, and it was very good.”

Putting her chin on his chest, she said with wide eyes, “I had a dream, and you were in my dream too.”

“Well it is understandable, Charleen. We have had some pretty intense hours since we met.” He remembered the dream and smiled.

“Yes, but in my dream you called me a different name, Tab.” She was trying to think, “Let me see, it wasn’t Charleen. It was Charm . . .  something?” Then she furrowed her brow. “Charm . . .  Charm . . . ”

“Charmeine?” he cut her off and was shaking to his core.

“Yes, Charmeine. That’s it.” Then she furrowed her brow and asked, “How did you know that?” Not waiting for him to answer, she inquired with a wondering look, “Is your real name . . . Tabbruis?”

Again taken aback, his eyes widened, and he nodded slowly.

Tabbruis and Charleen both bolted up and sat across from each other instantly knowing they had the same dream.

Tabbruis was stunned!

Charleen was reeling!

GIVEAWAY and ‘She was life’.. excerpt from “CHARMEINE” the 1st Novel in “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido

tumblr_m3el35QLnb1ql3cv0o1_500Tabbruis stood looking at the New York harbor. Even though Charleen had been asleep for a couple of hours, he did not want to leave her. He paced up and down the terrace slowly thinking of her. He was going through all the memories and images from the moment he met her. While she was sleeping, he studied her sweet face. The apparitions he had of her before they met were nothing compared to real life.

He had to admit he was enthralled by her. He wanted to make her arms his permanent home. He reveled in the thought of being with her every day. Nevertheless, he could not see how they could be together, because they were opposites. He mumbled, “How can I even tell her how I feel? How can I have a relationship with her? How can I ever make this work?”

However, he knew eventually he would have to leave her, and it would be the right thing to leave her. If they were ever together, by some miracle, they would be chased and hunted down until the ends of the Earth by the Elder Council Temple Guards and sentenced to death.

Tabbruis hung his head and acquiesced to the fact he had to make sure she was safe, and then he must leave. His heart broke in two because nothing in the world had ever made him feel so alive, not even blood. She sparked to him and him only. He thought it must mean something. His eyes started to well with tears, and his heart ached thinking about leaving her.

Now, finally after eight thousand years, he knew peace with her. When he finally separated from her, Tabbruis knew he would be in great misery. His broken heart ached to be with her. To him, she was all he wanted . . . she was life.

All of sudden, he heard a heart-wrenching scream. With superhuman speed, he sat down beside her.

She was thrashing about.

 “Charleen, wake up. It is just a dream, wake up.” He grabbed her arms.

She was still fighting in her dream. She was out of breath and sweat was pouring off of her face. Her hair was matted down to her neck with sweat.

He knew she was terrified. Her heart was practically beating out of her chest. Trying to soothe her he assured, “Charleen . . . Shh, it is only just a bad dream. Shh, everything is okay. Charleen!”

Slowly she started to come out of it. She gradually opened her eyes and focused on Tabbruis’ face above her. Immediately, she threw herself at him. She almost toppled him over. She was on his lap and hugging him so tightly, it took his breath away. Pressing her hand on his chest over and over again, she cried out, “Are you real? Are you here? Please don’t leave me!”

I wanted a gift for Christmas so bad with all my  14 year old heart.

I was sure, without a doubt, I wasn’t going to get it!

Presents were scarce in a household with eight kids

We celebrated all the Holidays with food, games, and singing carols, NOT presents.

That’s what I thought about writing this . . .

 

(By the way, the Timex watch I wanted was tucked inside a branch of the Christmas Tree after all. I didn’t find it until late Christmas night. I still have it to this day!)
